179. THE WAR GAME: THE REALITY OF NUCLEAR WAR

We present the US television premiere of Peter Watkins' film "The
War Game," a graphic portrayal of what would happen in the event
of a nuclear attack on Great Britain. The movie was so powerful
and realistic that the BBC banned it from TV despite the fact
that the film had been commissioned by the BBC and had won an
Academy Award in l966 for best documentary. Although it has been
shown in a few movie theatres in the US, it has not been
presented on TV. "The War Game" is shocking, but is not
sensationalized. It was carefully researched and based on actual
events which occurred in World War II during and after the mass
Allied raids on Germany and the atomic bombings of Japan.
